In 2010, Conley pleaded guilty to killing his 10-year-old brother. The Ohio Circuit Court sentenced Conley, who was 17 at the time of the crime, to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The sentence was affirmed on direct appeal. Conley’s petition for post-conviction relief was denied in 2019, and he appealed. The Court of Appeals affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded with instructions to conduct a new sentencing hearing. Conley v. State, 164 N.E.3d 787 (Ind. Ct. App. 2021), vacated. The Indiana Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
